    Masks required on some days after 3-1-2022

    This store policy replaces all previous mask policies. Per current CDC guidance if “community level” is low, masks are optional.

Each day we will check the CDC website to see what the community level is for Lake County IL. If it is low, masks are optional but preferred. We would love it if you wore a mask, but they are not required. If it is medium or higher, we will require masks in the store. Masks will be provided if you do…

    December update

    December 1, 2020 …  Just realized it has been a few weeks since our last update. We’re making progress, but we’re not done.

This should not be a surprise, but we’re taking your health, and ours, very seriously. We’ll post more on this when we have…

    20201029 Construction Update

    Construction! October 29, 2020 If you’re in Waukegan, you’re going to notice a lot of construction activity over the next few weeks as we prepare to reopen. Today we’re having those two gigantic safes removed. This will free up a large amount of floor space for us. We had to remove the dressing rooms to remove the safes, but do not worry … we saved the paintings that were done by Jennifer (way back in the 90’s!)  and will find a good place to display those once the remodel is done. Starting on Friday, the storefront windows are being removed, temporarily boarded up, and replaced – all new framing and…
